The 3 Best Days To Pray


I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: Which we have heard and known, and our
f athers have told us. We will not hide them f rom their children, showing to the generation to come the praises
of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderf ul works that he has done. - Psalm 78:2-4

T he 3 best days to pray...


T here are 3 days in which answers to prayers come f aster (and more powerf ully) than at any other time.
T hese are the days when mere mortals can capture the undivided attention of Heaven.
From: Elisha Goodman

Sunday 2:15 AM

Calvary greetings
T here are 3 days in which answers to prayers come f aster (and more powerf ully) than at any other time. T hese
are the days that mere mortals can capture the undivided attention of Heaven.
Believe it or not, getting the attention of heaven laser-f ocused on your situation even f or a minute is all that
you require f or victory, miracles and uncommon breakthroughs.
And...
Knowing how to stretch that one minute into one hour one day up to 3 days and beyond is the secret
sauce f or a lif etime of signs and wonders.
Bef ore we go a step f urther, please lets pause f or prayers.
You will lif t up your voice and cry unto the Lord like this:
1.

O Lord, open my spiritual ears to hear, and my spiritual eyes to see your glory in Jesus name.

2.

Any seed of rebellion in my lif e I command you to die in Jesus name.

3.

I ref use to live in a captive universe; powers of captivity loose your hold in the name of Jesus.

Now we are ready to begin.


Were going to read quite a f ew Scriptures to give us perspective.
T hat is because every message must rest on a strong scriptural f oundation in order to unleash its f ull
potential to go f orth and accomplish the purpose to which it is sent.
In Matthew chapter 15 we read:
T hen Jesus called his disciples to him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue
with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away f asting, lest they f aint in the
way.
And his disciples say to him, From where should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to f ill so great a

multitude? And Jesus said to them, How many loaves have you? And they said, Seven, and a f ew little f ishes.
And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
And he took the seven loaves and the f ishes, and gave thanks, and broke them, and gave to his disciples, and
the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were f illed: and they took up of the broken meat that
was lef t seven baskets f ull. And they that did eat were f our thousand men, beside women and children.
- Matt 15:32-38
Please take note of the phrase:
T hey have been with me three days and have had nothing to eat.
How many days? 3 days.
Now we take a sampling of verses f rom the book of Jonah:
Now the LORD had prepared a great f ish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the f ish three
days and three nights...
T hen Jonah prayed to the LORD his God out of the f ish's belly,
And said, I cried by reason of my af f liction to the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and
you heard my voice.
- Jonah 1:17; 2:1-2
Please take note of phrase: 3 days and 3 nights.
Incidentally many people reading this might be in a worse situation that the prophet Jonah, if only they
could see where they are right now in the spirit.
How do I know this?
How can I be so sure?
We'll come back to this shortly...
T he next scripture is f rom Acts of the Apostles. In chapter 9 we see this:
And Saul arose f rom the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand,
and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias.
And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. And the Lord said to him, Arise, and go into the street which is called
Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas f or one called Saul, of Tarsus: f or, behold, he prays, And has seen
in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
Acts 9:8-12
Again note the number: 3 days
Also note the phrase: neither did eat or drink.
Bef ore I make seven incremental statements well take two steps. First, well take a step back into the
Old Testament, and then well jump f orward into the New Testament f or a couple more verses.

(Hint: T here is a reason we are going back and f orth. It will all be clear in a moment.)
T hen Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in
Shushan, and f ast you f or me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will
f ast likewise; and so will I go in to the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
Esther 4:15-16
How many days?

3 days

How many nights? 3 nights


In Luke 11 we read this:
And he said to them, Which of you shall have a f riend, and shall go to him at midnight, and say to him, Friend,
lend me three loaves; For a f riend of my in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set bef ore him?
And he f rom within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in
bed; I cannot rise and give you. I say to you, T hough he will not rise and give him, because he is his f riend, yet
because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needs.
Luke 11:5-8
Whats the number here?

It is 3.

Not one. Not two. Not 5. Not 7.


T here is a reason f or this.
Going back to our working scripture in the book of Acts, we notice a peculiar thing:
T he Lord told Ananias:
And the Lord said to him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of
Judas f or one called Saul, of Tarsus: f or, behold, he prays
From His throne in heaven, the Lord moved with urgency in response to Pauls prayers and
Despatched an immediate answer to that prayer using a human vessel on the earth.
I want to make sure we get this clearly:
-

Paul was 3 days without f ood or water

He spent the whole time praying

T he God of heaven and earth responded immediately to those prayers

By dispatching the answer through His human agent closest to the scene of action

At this point we are ready to make the f irst 2 important statements:

Important Statement #1:


Your 3 days of prayer, when you neither eat nor drink, provide you with the best (f astest) opportunity to
capture the undivided attention of heaven.

And the next...

Important Statement #2:


With heavens attention f ocused on YOU, all of Gods creation (including human and spirit beings) will align
to quickly bring His desires in answer to your prayers.

What happened to Apostle Paul provides us with a naked demonstration of these two statements.
But there is a question
Why would the God of heaven and earth do this? It is not as if He is under any obligation to answer us.
Going back to the very f irst scripture we read, were told that Jesus f elt something f or this crowd of people
f ollowing Him around f or 3 days. So He decided to f eed them.
Why?
He gave his own reason:
T hen Jesus called his disciples to him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue
with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away f asting
When you study the miracles of Jesus as He ministered to people, you will discover that of tentimes He was
driven by this thing called compassion.
And what is compassion?
T he dictionary tells us that it is:
A f eeling of deep sympathy and sorrow f or another who is stricken by misf ortune, accompanied by a strong
desire to alleviate the suf f ering.
We see His compassion in action when
-

Healed the sick (Matt 14:14)

Gave f ood to 4000 (Mark 8:2)

Restored sight to the blind (Matt 20:34)

Taught the mysteries of his kingdom (Mark 6:34)

T his leads us directly to our next statement:

Important Statement #3:


T he LORDs compassion is poured f orth beyond measure during the 3 days that you pray, neither eating
nor drinking.

To receive anything f rom the Lord, YOU and I need His compassion. Absent this, we would f ind our
Christian journey a lot harder than it needs to be.
Now, compassion has a close cousin in the spirit realm.
In Psalm 102 we read:
You will arise and have compassion on Z ion, f or it is time to show f avor to her; the appointed time has come. Psalm 102:13
Compassion and Favor.
It is wonderf ul enough when the Lord has compassion on us. When He now adds His f avour, then
things can get mind-boggling pretty f ast.
I mean awe-inspiring things. Stuf f that def ies logical or rational explanation.

One of the hidden f orces


that drives the universe

Please listen closely:


T he Lords f avor is one of the hidden f orces that drives the universe.
Once this supernatural power invades your lif e, you will be promoted to a whole new realm a realm
where you will become an ef f ective co-laborer with the Lord.
Def end the poor and f atherless: do justice to the af f licted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out
of the hand of the wicked. T hey know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the
f oundations of the earth are out of course.
I have said, You are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
- Psalm 82:3-6
I have to tread caref ully here, bef ore some modern-day Pharisee out there accuses me of blasphemy.

T hat is because their spiritual f orbears attacked Jesus violently when He quoted this same scripture in John
10:34.
Im getting ahead of myself here
Back to what we were discussing.

In order to make progress,


this is an absolute requirement

T he Lords f avor is an absolute requirement if you are to move f rom your present level to the realm of
the eagles.
It is an absolute requirement if you are to f inally break the backbone of generational oppression and
hidden spiritual captivity.
And yes it is an absolute requirement if you really want to possess your possession and walk in your
divine destiny in Christ Jesus.
For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but your right
hand, and your arm, and the light of your countenance, because you had a f avor to them.
- Psalm 44:3
So how did they possess their possession? T he Lords Favor.
Now lets check in with the beautif ul Queen Esther. Last time we read about her, she was getting herself
and her troops ready f or a peculiar 3-day f ast the Esther Fast.
Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the
king's house, over against the king's house: and the king sat on his royal throne in the royal house, over
against the gate of the house. And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that
she obtained f avor in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. So
Esther drew near, and touched the top of the scepter.
- Esther 5:1-2
Queen Esther was walking a really f ine line here. Her approaching this king without a f ormal, royal
invitation should have gotten her head chopped of f immediately. T hats the way things worked in those days.
But instead she received what? Royal f avor.
History makes it clear that this king was a notorious killer who thought nothing of murdering his
generals, his subjects and even his own sons.
Esther knew this very well. T he Jews, upon whom a blanket death sentence had just been passed, also knew
this very well.
But they knew something else something divinely inspired.
Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and f ast you f or me, and neither eat nor drink
three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will f ast likewise; and so will I go in to the king Esther 4:15-16

T hat brings us to the next statement.

Important Statement #4:


3 days and 3 nights of prayer, when you neither eat nor drink, opens the heavens and wraps a blanket of
f avour around you.

Please slow down . and let that sink into your spirit.
When the LORDs f avour wraps around you like a thick blanket, it means you have 24-hour, round-theclock divine protection.
For you, LORD, will bless the righteous; with f avor will you compass him as with a shield. - Psalm 5:12
Friends, at this ultra-high security level of protection, your enemies will not even be able to see you.
Yes, you become invisible to your enemies.
T he only entities allowed to locate you will be your divine helpers!
PLUS those who need to restore your blessings.
And if they f ail to bless you promptly, the Lord will appear to them in a vision or dream, and instruct
them to move quickly or else
Now Abraham journeyed f rom there toward the land of the Negev, and settled between Kadesh and Shur; then
he sojourned in Gerar. Abraham said of Sarah his wif e, She is my sister. So Abimelech king of Gerar sent and
took Sarah.
But God came to Abimelech in a dream of the night, and said to him, Behold, you are a dead man because of
the woman whom you have taken, f or she is married. Now Abimelech had not come near her; and he said,
Lord, will You slay a nation, even though blameless? Did he not himself say to me, She is my sister? And she
herself said, He is my brother. In the integrity of my heart and the innocence of my hands I have done this.
T hen God said to him in the dream, Yes, I know that in the integrity of your heart you have done this, and I
also kept you f rom sinning against Me; theref ore I did not let you touch her. Now theref ore, restore the mans
wif e, f or he is a prophet, and he will pray f or you and you will live. But if you do not restore her, know that you
shall surely die, you and all who are yours.
Abimelech then took sheep and oxen and male and f emale servants, and gave them to Abraham, and restored
his wif e Sarah to him.
Gen.20:1-7; 14
Now we are going deep deep deep.
T here is another dimension to this.

T he Bible says:
For ever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven. - Psalm 119:89
For the next prayer, we change location (in the spirit) so we can take it f rom the vantage point of
heaven.
Please close your eyes and take this prayer with a holy shout:
By the decree of heaven, let every creation of God begin to work in my f avour f rom now hencef orth in the
name of Jesus Christ.
Id be remiss if I did not point this out right away.
T here is another side to this thing called the Lords Favor.
As you are receiving the Lords f avor, the enemies of your divine destiny could well be receiving
something else.
And that something is called JUDGMENT.
When Esther and her people received the kings f avour, their sworn enemy Haman received what?
Judgment.
When the Israelites of old moved in to possess the land as a result of the Lords Favor, what did the
previous occupants receive? Judgment.
Within the 3 Best Days to pray, there is a way you can specif ically release the Lords judgment on all the
troublers of your Israel.
Mind you, these troublers might be dif f erent f or dif f erent people.
-

For some it could be the troublers of their health (those ones go by many f ancy names these days).

For some it could be the troublers of their marital destiny

For others it might be ancestral or generation evil troublers on a suicide mission to steal, kill or destroy.
No matter.
Once the Lords f avor wraps around you, they all are in f or a time of divine judgment, without exception.
Lets see how this works.
David said:

At midnight I will rise to give thanks to you because of your righteous judgments.
- Psalm 119:62
If you know a bit about David, you will agree that he was a man who knew how to praise the Lord,
among other things.
Here he is revealing a deep secret.
He says that at the midnight hour, he would usually spend quality time in high praises unto the Lord.
If you study some of the Psalms he penned af ter those midnight sessions, you will f ind a strange

If you study some of the Psalms he penned af ter those midnight sessions, you will f ind a strange
comingling of prayers f or the Lords f avour and f or the Lords judgment of ten in the same breadth.
By his midnight action through prayer, praise and worship David regularly precipitated a collision of
two opposing f orces.
1.

T he f orce of the Lords f avor

2.

T he f orce of the Lords judgment

T hese two powers (or f orces) would collide together, and then separate and go of f in dif f erent directions
f avor towards David, and judgment towards his enemies.
In the pre-release version of this manuscript, I mentioned that your prayers must cause a collision in the
unseen realms, in order f or certain things to move.
In the past, so many people had expressed reservation, even shock, at how aggressive Davids prayers
sometimes sound.
One moment he is praising the Lord. T he next moment he is releasing terrible weapons of judgment
against his enemies.
NOT E: When you see the word enemies in our materials, we are NOT ref erring to human beings. Our
f ocus is on the invisible entities mentioned in Ephesians 6 verse 12.
With that being said, we are now ready f or the next statement.

Important Statement #5:


Your 3 days of prayer, when you neither eat nor drink, is the perf ect time to break down ancient barriers,
open closed doors, and put the camp of the enemy in total disarray, PROVIDED you mix your prayers with
aggressive midnight praise.

You remember how the shout of praises brought down the ancient walls of Jericho?
T hat took 7 days.

Here you have a shortcut...

You can bring down every invisible wall of captivity in 3 days or less
If only you will learn (and master) the art of midnight praise.
Now, f or those f olks who are under the erroneous impression that the Old Testament is outdated, lets
see a quick demonstration of this age-less principle in the New Testament.

And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises to God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly
there was a great earthquake, so that the f oundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the
doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.
Acts 16:25-26
Praise the LORD.
Here they were using a combination of just 2 things:
-

Midnight prayer

Midnight praise
Because thats all they had at their disposal in the situation they f ound themselves.
But look what results they got!
T his matter of divine judgment is very, very important to understand.

Once the Lords f avour is poured f orth, you can be sure the sword of judgment has also been unleashed
to accomplish the strange works of the Lord somewhere AT T HE SAME T IME.
Heres a classic example:
Now about that time Herod the king stretched f orth his hands to vex certain of the church. And he killed James
the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded f urther to take
Peter also. (T hen were the days of unleavened bread.)
And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to f our squads of soldiers to keep
him; intending af ter Easter to bring him f orth to the people.
Peter theref ore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church to God f or him.
And when Herod would have brought him f orth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers,
bound with two chains: and the keepers bef ore the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord
came on him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise
up quickly.
And his chains f ell of f f rom his hands. And the angel said to him, Gird yourself , and bind on your sandals. And
so he did. And he said to him, Cast your garment about you, and f ollow me. And he went out, and f ollowed him;
and knew not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
When they were past the f irst and the second ward, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city; which
opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and immediately the
angel departed f rom him.
And when Peter was come to himself , he said, Now I know of a surety, that the LORD has sent his angel, and
has delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and f rom all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was
Mark; where many were gathered together praying....
And on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his throne, and made an oration to them. And the
people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord

smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
- Acts 12:1-12; 21-24
T here is an A-B-C lesson here:
A. When king Herod captured (and eventually killed) the apostle James, the disciples did well nothing.
T he enemy moved too f ast f or them to react. T hey had no time. No warning. Nothing.
B. Emboldened by his success, Herod went f orward to grab Peter, the chief apostle at the time, thinking he
could put him to death just as easily as hed done to James.
C. But there was a little problem. T his time the disciples were ready f or him. Somehow they had snapped out
of their slumber and jumped into relentless, unceasing prayer.
Because of their prayer intervention, a collision of f orces was set in motion. In the af termath, the power of
f avour moved swif tly toward Peter, drawing him out of prison, and toward the praying saints as they were
engaged in their midnight battle.
On the other hand, the sword of judgment was drawn irresistibly to his oppressor, resulting in a less than
desirable end f or him. T hat is how the evil package of untimely death planned f or Peter was returned to sender
without any apologies.
By the way, I hope you know how to send evil arrows back to sender. It is totally scriptural to do so.
It is time to pray again:
Lord, I ask that you sit in judgement against all those
that trouble me, including their agents, advisors, consultants,
priests and prophets...
And let every Pharaoh or Herod sitting in judgement against
me receive your righteous judgement and indignation right
now in Jesus' name.
I just pulled that prayer f rom our little prayer book, the Prayer of Caleb the one book that is on the
bookshelf of Prayer Academy graduates worldwide.
Skilf ully applied, this one prayer can deliver more that its f ull weight in gold.
One prayer eagle recently sent in this praise report, af ter her f riend took the prayer out f or a test
drive.
"When I started the Prayer Academy in October
last year I told a f riend about it.
I did not see her until two weeks ago when she asked
how I was getting on.
I shared a lot of testimonies and told her that even
though it is hard work you f all in love with the results
and keep going.
She, on the other hand, was struggling with many things
including problems at work and was at risk of losing her job.

I shared the book "T he Prayer of Caleb" which I carry


with me all the time and encouraged her to pray.
She used her phone to take a picture of one of the prayers
which she went away and prayed over a dif f icult issue at work.
A f ew days later I received a text saying that the issue
had been resolved in her f avour!
In her words she said,
"I am starting to like the results! Praise God!"
T his is the prayer she prayed:
Lord, I ask that you sit in judgement against all those
that trouble me, including their agents, advisors, consultants,
priests and prophets...
And let every pharaoh or Herod sitting in judgement against
me receive your righteous judgement and indignation right
now in Jesus' name.
May God continue to bless and increase your ministry."
- Sister Rejoice

Praise the LORD.


Moving on.
T he 3 Best Days To Pray
is like a 3-legged stool

1st leg is:

T he 3 days without eating and drinking

2nd leg is:

T he midnight praise action during those 3 days

3rd leg is:

T he prayers, the prayers and the prayers

In the spirit realm things are not always what they seem.
An innocent-looking prayer like:
O LORD, clothe me with your garment of f avour
can have f ar-reaching consequences than you can ever imagine. While you might only be thinking of
all nice and wonderf ul things, that same prayer can at the same time trigger an earthquake of divine judgment
somewhere.

At the midnight gate, you need to f ollow the leading of the Holy Spirit very very closely. You must learn
to move in lockstep with Him not rushing ahead of Him, and not f alling behind Him.
You must be in step, in sync and in tune with Him.
How do you do this? By His WORD.
As you immerse yourself in the Word, many hidden nuggets will be dropped in your spirit.
If you know how to grab those golden nuggets and convert them to f ast-action prayer bullets, then you
will be of f to the races.
Bef ore the f eeding of the 4000 that we saw earlier, Jesus said:
I have compassion on the multitude,
because they have been with me now three days
T hey had been with Him doing what?
Listening to Him teach. Hanging on to His every Word. Hungrily taking it in. day af ter day af ter day.
T hey replaced their physical hunger with a hunger f or His word.
Now watch this:
Once they replaced their physical hunger with a hunger f or His word His compassion was triggered.
To a limitless and overf lowing degree.
We are now approaching what might be...
T he most important statement in this entire letter...

Important Statement #6:


Your 3 days of prayer, when you neither eat nor drink, but rather immerse yourself in midnight praise,
midnight prayer, and the Word will bring you into true ONENESS with the Risen Lord.

He will begin to f eed you with the Bread of Heaven i.e. Himself .
He will plug your lif e into the divine electricity grid and suddenly you will begin to shine like the light of
the world that you were meant to be.
At this level, internal barriers operating in some dark area of your lif e unseen will begin to melt away. All
the strangers will hastily f ind their way out of their hiding places in your body or risk being incinerated by
the divine electricity now coursing through your veins.
T his is f or real.

At this level nothing will be hidden f rom you. T he secrets of your lif e (that the enemy has been taking
advantage of ) will suddenly be laid bare bef ore you.
If you DARE to f ollow through with this experience, the voice of the Spirit will be activated f rom deep
within you.
T his is like an internal GPS telling you what to do, how to do it, when to move, when to stay still, etc.
We are getting ready to make our f inal statement in a moment.
Bef ore then please lets pause again f or prayer:
O LORD, I need divine direction;
order my steps in your word in Jesus name.
In Psalm 119 verse 105 it is written:
T hy word is a lamp unto my f eet, and a light unto my path. - Psalm 119:105
I want to make sure you get this
What we are talking about here is the voice of the Word that you receive by revelation which must be
perf ectly in agreement with the Word of God in scripture.
Your ability to hear and discern the voice of His word is the single most important thing in your lif e. And
the only way you will be able to develop hearing ears to hear the voice of His word in the spirit is through DEEP
prayer, like the type were discussing here.
T he voice of His word.
T his is no ordinary word.
It contains within itself a rare seed indeed. Within this seed lies the power to f ocus and motivate you
through f ire and pouring rain.
T he power that will propel you f orward especially when things look hopeless and you f eel like giving
up.
With this power, giving up wont be an option. Rather you will f ind yourself thrust f orward, driven
inexorable towards your divine destiny by something inside you which you may not be able to put a f inger
on.
With this in mind, our last of the 7 incremental statements goes like this:

Important Statement #7:


Your 3 days of prayer, when you neither eat nor drink, but rather immerse yourself in midnight praise,
prayer and the WORD will ignite the anointing within you to power you to the f inish line (your divine
destiny).

Look, the Bible says:


And as f or you, the anointing which you received f rom Him remains within you, and there is no need f or any
one to teach you. But since His anointing gives you instruction in all things--and is true and is no f alsehood-you are continuing in union with Him even as it has taught you to do.
- 1 John 2:27
It is within YOU. It may just be dormant. It is not outside!
Praise the LORD.
You see today most people have heard endless messages f rom teachers, preachers and other
ministers.
T hey know what is right and what is wrong.
T hey can quote many scriptures and tell captivating Bible stories.
Yet, when conf ronted with medium-to-tough situations, they f ind no strength to carry on. You see them
running f rom pillar to post, looking f or anointed persons to do everything f or them.
When they are told to do the simplest things like reading one chapter of the Bible and praying just a f ew
prayers, they f ind no strength or motivation to go through with it.
T hey attend many seminars, learn many things but f ind that they lack the f ocus and motivation to
f ollow through and apply whatever it is they learned.
All too of ten you f ind the words of the old apostle coming to pass:
For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again f or someone to teach you the
elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid f ood.
- Heb.5:12
So lif e becomes a never-ending treadmill.
No progress. Nothing to show f or years of walking the Christian walk.
Only misery torture oppression.
But things dont have to be this way.
Change can happen. Dramatic change.
It will take something being triggered deep within you f or this change to happen.
Welcome to the world of the eagles.
What I have described to you here is the biblical path to unstoppable anointing.
T here are NO shortcuts.

T he Best 3 Days secret is at the root of every anointed minister or ministry there is anywhere in the
world.
Are there believers you think are more anointed than you?
Is this their SECRET SAUCE?
T his is the absolute starting point on their journey up the mountain of power.
T hey all start f rom here and then go on to surrender leadership to the Holy Ghost who would then
take them anywhere He wishes.
Depending on the particular mountain you want to climb (Everest anyone?) the Holy Ghost can stretch
what Ive described here to 7 days, 10 days, 14 days, 21 days, 40 days and even beyond.
For instance I saw this one in my inbox a f ew days ago:
Hi Elisha
God has smiled on me! Remember I told you I was in a 21 days f asting
in April f rom the 10th to the 30th. Tell you what? God has answered my
prayers!
I HAVE BEEN PROMOT ED!!!!
If you remember my story, f or nine years I was earning peanuts and
everyone seemed hostile at work at my promotion. Many a times
recommendations were made which never came to pass. Following up on
them was f utile.
But just 30 days af ter f asting I have my promotion and guess what! Its
double what I have been earning. Isn't it wonderf ul. I thank the Lord
and I thank you Elisha f or teaching me the secret of the 'back door'
because in all those 21 days I woke up at the midnight hour just to
worship God and pray in tongues. And it happened!
- Itumeleng
Notice what she did, besides f asting:
"I woke up at the midnight hour just to worship God and pray in tongues."
Reminds you of David, doesn't it?
T housands of believers write to me, claiming they had gone through deliverance countless times yet
the problem remains. In many cases the problems keep on multiplying.
I ask a simple question:
Can you describe to me a typical deliverance session that youve gone through?
Over the years I have heard things like:
1.

I had tea with a powerf ul prophet and he declared that I was delivered.

2.

A pastor prayed over me and told me I didnt need deliverance.

3.

I received a prophecy that all my problems were going to be over shortly.

4.

I f ell under the anointing as hands were laid on me.

5.

I was told to drink anointing oil and take a holy bath (whatever that means).

6.

I was told to sleep with a Bible under my pillow every night.

7.

etc, etc.

When I hear things like this I gently advise them to look f or a Bible-believing Christian ministry that
understands deliverance and make haste to join their program without f urther delay.
While not telling them whether their "deliverance" in the past was good or bad, usually I give them one
hint:
"If you can f ind a ministry with a deliverance program that begins or ends with a 3-day Esther-style f ast,
then chances are youre in the right place."
Just one clue. But it is a crucial one.
T here is a divine pattern f or ef f ective deliverance.
Some ministers know it. Some dont.
Some churches practice it. Some dont.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to put on the unif orm of a spiritual detective and go
f ind the genuine ones
Otherwise in your desperate quest f or a solution to your problems, you run the high risk of f alling into
the pit of serious error (one that has taken some believers many long weary years to dig themselves out of ).
Look at this email I received years ago f rom Ireland:
T hank you Elisha f or the great job you are doing. May God
bless you abundantly. T here was one of your prayer bullets that
I used. It was about arrows of death. I prayed that prayer at
midnight, and that night I had a dream. I saw myself inside a
f ridge buried underground. T hank God in that dream I had the
power to get out. When I came out, I saw armed people coming
to me. T hey were all carrying dangerous-looking weapons, but I
told them that I serve the Living God. T hey came near as they
wanted to f inish me of f but their weapons ref used to work!
Praise the LORD!

T his is what I meant when I said earlier that many people today are in a worse situation than Jonah in
the belly of the f ish.
I dont mean to digress here
But doesnt it just make you sad to see f ellow believers f alling f or all kinds of myths and half -truths
and having to go through a prolonged period of painf ul (and expensive) trial and error to correct their past
mistakes?
You see all these wonderf ul Christian brothers and sisters everywhere. T heyre born again. T hey love
the Lord, and they try to put their heart and soul into walking with the Lord daily.
T hey want to have a healthy relationship with the Lord (but without much prayer). T hey want to create a
good lif e f or themselves and their f amilies. T hey want to make a meaningf ul impact on the world, using godly
principles.
T hey work so hard. Still they f all f lat. T heir f ocus is scattered, and they spend most of their time
running af ter all kinds of dif f erent things that someone told them will work, but just arent going to (thanks to
little or no prayer).
So they get cynical. T heir heart grows stone-cold. T hey stop trusting the Word of God.
Many send me emails giving all kinds of excuses why they couldnt f ast and pray as I teach (to be sure,
many of these reasons are genuine as when someone is pregnant or on medication).
Sometimes, I check back to see how they are doing. A season af ter they f irst landed on our websites.
Or half a year. Or more.
And I hear endless stories about
-

An abandoned dream.

An abandoned marriage

An abandoned goal

An abandoned destiny.
It breaks my heart each time, and each time, I wish someone would do something about it
help take us back to the basics of PRAYER T HAT WORKS.
T hen one day the Lord told me to be that someone.
And the result is this (rather) long letter you are now reading.

As we bring this to a close, please note that you are not under any obligation to believe anything Ive
said until
You go ahead and prove it to yourself
By diligently applying these principles, you will be able to see the PROOF of what youve been reading
here.
Because the LORD who sent me stands ready to back up this message 100 percent.

He says:
T hus said the LORD, your redeemer, and he that f ormed you f rom the womb, I am the LORD that makes all
things; that stretches f orth the heavens alone; that spreads abroad the earth by myself ;
T hat f rustrates the tokens of the liars, and makes diviners mad; that turns wise men backward, and makes
their knowledge f oolish;
T hat conf irms the word of his servant, and perf ormes the counsel of his messengers...
Isa. 44:24-26a
Praise the LORD.
On our part, well be taking all these principles out f or a road test shortly.
How?
T he LORD has directed us to apply this teaching to one of the biggest areas of need in the Body of
Christ today.
Im talking about a daunting problem that keeps rearing its ugly head in my inbox every single day (I will
tell you about it in a moment).
But bef ore then
T his is something that can neutralize
everything Ive said so f ar!
You might already know that it requires an intimate relationship with someone in order to truly know and
recognize his voice when he speaks.
Same thing with God.
Without a relationship with Him and an intimate one f or that matter it will be very dif f icult to
operate this 3 Best Days principle.
Or hear His voice. Or enjoy his compassion or f avor or 24-hour protection or all the other
wonderf ul things weve been looking at here.
If it is of interest to you, you can start that relationship with Him right away (if you have NOT already
done so).
Bible tells us there is only one thing that can ACT IVELY sabotage your relationship with Him.
And that thing is SIN.
Hearing the gospel day in day out, but continuing to live in any known sin will cut you of f f rom the
presence of God, and make your prayers to f all f lat no matter how well you put into practice all the other
things weve been discussing here.
Sin is a killer. T he Bible says:
Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But
your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his f ace f rom you, that he

will not hear.


- Isa 59:1-2
For the wages of sin is death; but the gif t of God is eternal lif e through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Rom. 6:23
Some believers reading this are harbouring deep, dark secrets they dare not share with anyone. Today I
counsel you to take everything to the Lord in prayer without f urther delay.
You need to f all on your f ace today and cry out to Him in sincere repentance.
For those who have never surrendered their lives to Him, now is the perf ect time.
T he Bible says:
For he says, In the time of my f avor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you, now is the
time of Gods f avor, now is the day of salvation.
- 2 Cor.6:2
Seeing that the warning still comes to us, "To-day, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as your
f oref athers did in the time of the provocation."
- Heb 3:15
